As part of our Science Week activities this year, Mrs Burns has organised for a Marine Biologist to come in and talk to us about sharks from a Marine Biology perspective.

This incursion will take place on Wednesday, 18th August (Week 5). The cost of the incursion will be $4 per student. All details for this incursion will be sent out via our new Consent 2 Go system. Please keep an eye out for the information in your emails.
 
Amanda completed her Bachelor of Science degree at Murdoch University where she majored in both Marine and Biological Science. She then went on to complete her Masters in Marine Biological Science at the University of Western Australia and will complete her Master’s in Business Administration this year. In 2019, Amanda was awarded a South African Shark Conservancy Women in Shark Science Scholarship where she spent one month in South Africa studying endemic sharks and promoting women in STEM. With a passion for the environment and conservation, Amanda created an initiative known as Fin Free Soup. Her unique Fin Free logo displayed in a restaurant’s front window indicates to consumers that the restaurant does not serve shark fin soup and, in turn, does not support the shark fin trade. Amanda has since written and hosted a documentary based on her initiative which aired on Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.
